Center for Partnerships in GIS
GIS Technicians in CPGIS

While CPGIS is committed to the advancement of GIS technology at the University of Memphis, a large part of our mission is to prepare students for a future job market which is increasingly dependent upon GIS for strategic decision making. This is accomplished by engaging our workforce on projects at the local to national scale. Our workforce is comprised of both students and recent graduates (undergraduate and graduate) from over 12 different disciplines including Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, City and Regional Planning, Computer Science, Geology, Geography, and numerous others. As new students are hired, they are placed in a mentoring program with students that have more experience with the project and the software. All data that is produced is placed through a rigorous, multi-tiered quality check cycle that guarantees that CPGIS continues to release quality data.

Not only do students gain experience by working on applied projects, they also benefit from working as part of a multi-disciplinary team. Participation in a work environment such as this allows students to simultaneously apply information from their course of study while also learning about other disciplines and their use of GIS in the workplace.
